The actor has been seen with two girls in recent days

Benedict Cumberbatch has admitted that he’s happy to wait for marriage after being spotted getting close with two women in the space of a week.

The actor, 37, was first seen kissing Russian model Katia Elizarova at a wedding in Ibiza before holding hands with actress Charlotte Asprey outside London club Cirque Le Soir on Saturday.

‘It is a wonderful thing to get married young and become a father. I used to think that I’d get married by my mid-thirties and have children,’ says Benedict.

‘But now I think I can wait. I’m no longer in a hurry to get married.’

Benedict ended his his 12-year romance with actress Olivia Poulet in 2011 – and split with girlfriend Anna Jones earlier this year, since when he’s been linked to a series of beauties.

He wants to find a lady with a good sense of humour to settle down with but says he needs to ‘build a trusting relationship’ before making a commitment.

‘A woman who knows that she doesn’t have to get all decked out to look good is sexy. A woman who can make you feel smart with her conversation is also sexy,’ Benedict tells Elle Japan.

‘I also think someone who is good at working with others is sexy. It’s like playing a tennis doubles match. You need to be able to work well together if you are to stay partners for a long time.’
